Due to the evolving impact of the COVID-19 virus, Wyndham City will be taking a limited number of practical student placements and employment pathway programs via educational institutions and external organisations. Whilst we are unable to guarantee a placement, where possible we will assess each application on a case by case basis and endeavour to accommodate the placement, whether that be online, in the office or a mix of both.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Should you have any questions, please email
